    Electricians Overview

    Very little in our current lives would function without electricity, therefore electricians work in a variety of roles across industry and in our homes. Electricians tend to specialise in key roles, such as home inspection and wiring, new build wiring, HVAC engineering, inspection & testing, underfloor heating and solar energy. Their work is extremely varied and can include tasks such as installing voice and data systems, emergency lighting systems, installing power and lighting systems, upgrading electrical systems, maintaining standby power generating systems, distributed control and SCADA systems, protection devices, drives and associated controls, direct current power systems and uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS). Finding a reliable electrician in your area can be difficult. Most people hire their tradesmen through word of mouth and recommendations from family members or friends. One simple way of finding electricians near me is to use a tradesmen directory site

    House Rewiring Cost

    The cost of having your house rewired by a competent and professional electrician can vary considerably depending on the number of fittings, layout, ease of access and overall size of the house. It is however possible to give some idea of the range of prices you could expect to pay, for complete rewiring of a 2 bed flat or bungalow, average prices are around £2000 to £2500, whereas for a 5 bed house the average price increases up to around £8500. Unless you have a lot of unusual electrical systems or fittings, the size of the house and number of rooms will have the biggest effect on price. When you are looking for an electrician nearby to complete a house rewire I would recommend getting multiple quotes from electricians in your area. They will come and look at the job and give you a cost estimate. The quotes you receive from each electrician will depend on how they have calculated the job. Have they used an online calculator or come up with the price themselves.

    Typical Home Electrical Projects and Average Costs

    The most popular electrical jobs we see people seeking quotations for are adding a ceiling light fixture with switch, adding an additional socket to an existing wiring installation, and replacing the Consumer Unit (which many still mistakenly call the Fusebox). Ceiling light fixtures and fittings costs can vary tremendously so it is impossible to give an average cost that includes fixtures and fittings, however for labour only replacing just the light fitting will cost from £30 to £70 on average. But this figure assumes switch and wiring already in place for a simple light replacement - if adding a ceiling light plus switch the actual cost will vary depending on the length of wire run and how near to the ring main the new light fitting and switch will be.

    Adding an additional power socket will also generally be priced on the length of wire run required, but will typically be in the £140 to £200 range for most jobs. Replacing the consumer unit (aka fusebox) is another common job and most electricians will charge from around £300 to £500 for standard jobs. Other popular electrical jobs include partial rewiring, fitting mains smoke detectors, adding kitchen or bathroom extractor fans, fitting showers and/or water pumps, and adding shaver points in bathrooms.

    Electrical Inspecting and Testing

    All electrical installations deteriorate with age and use, inspecting and testing such systems is a major source of work for electricians. All electrical systems should need to be inspected and tested at appropriate intervals to ensure they are in a satisfactory and safe condition for continued service. these safety checks are commonly known as "periodic inspection and testing". Such testing can reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded, find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards, identify defective electrical work and highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.

    The time intervals for periodic inspection and testing vary depending on the property and equipment, for example an owner-occupied home needs checked every 10 years and a rented home every 5 years, however, commercial equipment such as you might find in leisure centre swimming pools needs to be checked every 12 months. Periodic inspection and testing of electrical systems is not a DIY job, no matter how handy you may be! Electrical inspection and testing should be carried out only by registered electricians who can check the electrical system against the UK standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS 7671.

    Under Floor Heating

    Modern underfloor heating systems use either electrical resistance elements, or fluid flowing in pipes (hydronic systems) to heat the floor. Electrical resistance underfloor heating can only be used for heating, whereas hydronic systems can also be used for space cooling. These same systems on a larger scale are used to melt snow & ice on paths, driveways and landing pads, to cool skating rinks and to prevent football and rugby fields freezing. Whichever system you have fitted, it will include parts which are common to all heating systems such as, boilers, pumps and motorised valves. these systems are relatively maintenance free, however they need to be checked periodically by a qualified electrician. In particular, the underfloor heating manifolds should be checked annually for any leaks, the underfloor heating pipe needs to be checked for leaks and occasionally the system requires flushing to clear any blockages.

    Air Conditioning Electricians

    Air conditioners are basically a small version of a fridge, but without the insulated box. Whereas a fridge only cools the space inside it, air conditioners can cool a room or even an entire house. Air passing through the AC unit is cooled over the cold evaporator coil then blown back into the room, at the same time hot air vented through a window or wall via the exhaust hose. The cooling process also extracts moisture from the air and produces water, so air conditioning units have water tanks that need to be emptied (unless they have external drain facilities allowing water to run away continuously).

    Most refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) engineers are qualified electricians, they design, install and maintain cooling systems in commercial buildings and residential properties (though the demand for air conditioning is homes is very low in the UK thanks to the climate). Electricians in this industry are involved in designing, installing and maintaining cooling systems; surveying buildings where cooling systems are to be fitted; discussing requirements with customers; running quality checks to make sure systems are working properly and safely; diagnosing and fixing faults, plus carrying out any planned maintenance.
